CBN: Exposure Draft on Financial Inclusion Strategy for Nigeria
May 9, 2012
In continuation of its developmental role in the Nigerian economy, the Central Bank of Nigeria has developed an Exposure Draft on Financial Inclusion Strategy for Nigeria. The draft was prepared by a German-based Consultancy firm, Messrs Roland Berger in collaboration with the Enhancing Financial Innovation and Access (EFInA), Lagos, Nigeria.
The strategy is aimed at reducing the percentage of adult Nigerians excluded from financial services from 46.3 percent as at 2010 to 20 percent by 2020. This is with a view to enabling them to have access to financial services, engage in economic activities and contribute to the development of Nigeria.
As part of the process of consultation with stakeholders, we solicit for inputs from the public to enable the Bank finalize the document.
Please your contributions should reach the address stated below on or before Friday 18th May, 2012.
